One of my favorite things to do leading up to Halloween is going to a pumpkin patch.  It’s even more fun now with my nephew and niece and watching them fascinated by every pumpkin.

The Parker skirt is in an A-line cut with tweed material.  I didn’t have Halloween in mind when I bought this skirt, but now looking at these pictures, it’s quite fitting.

Wearing: Veda leather jacket, Parker skirt, Ash booties, Proenza Schouler PS11

Chicago was everything and more.  The people, the food, and the architecture, everything exceeded my expectations.  The weather was chilly and the air was crisp.  It truly feels like Fall there.  Los Angeles is home but sometimes I think about moving across the country.

Wearing: J. Crew turtleneck and blazer, Zara skirt, Stuart Weitzman boots, Proenza Schouler PS11.

More photos of my Chicago trip to come this week.  Here’s a little sneak peak:

Modern Woman

October 3, 2012 § 17 Comments

Fall marks the return of some of my favorite TV shows.  Modern Family, among a handful of others, is one of my favorites.  Sofia Vergara plays a housewife on the FOX hit series and she’s incredibly funny.  I was excited to read some highlights from her latest interview with Lucky where she’s the cover story for the November issue (on newsstands Oct 9). 

On what she thinks of her famously bodacious body: “I know [my breasts] have opened doors for me, let’s be real. But I so hate when I see Gisele and she is wearing a tiny little tank top with no bra, like, ‘Oh, I just threw this on, I look so cute.’ If I wore that I would look like I was pregnant, or a fat stripper.”

On her ‘Modern Family’ role as Gloria: “I know that Gloria is the role of a lifetime,” Vergara says. “It is very natural for me to play her.”

On her secret to success: “I think you can’t care too much, or you will get nowhere. You take a woman who is the same as me, the same body, the same face, the same whatever, and we could go to the same audition, and I would get it and she wouldn’t because I was like, if they want me, they want me and if they don’t, well, that’s okay. But of course you also have to move your ass.” 

On the inspiration for her clothing line for Kmart: “I met all these women there who saw all the fun, colorful, comfortable stuff I was wearing and said, “Where did you get that, it is so cute.” Vergara says. “And I knew I had access to the designers and I wanted to give the woman who is saving her grocery money for a cute outfit something good that she can afford.” 

On why she became an actress: “Truthfully,” Vergara says, “I always thought of acting as a way to get a clothing line, and as an experiment.”
